Austin City Limits

Well we finally made it to Texas. Most of us arrived today. The rest come tomorrow. A group of ten walked down Congress to Guerro’s for a raucous Mexican dinner. I’m back in my room, but the younger folks are still out drinking in Austin’s fabled night life. It’s a beautiful balmy night for it, too.
Here’s a shot of the view from my hotel window. I took it with a Fuji Finepix 6800 I’ve borrowed for the weekend. Nice camera – this is using the automatic night shot mode.

Tomorrow I’ve got two radio and a newspaper interview, then in the evening it’s our first show. We’re all really nervous about it. We’ve never done this before and we’re not sure if anyone will show up. Yikes!

  2. Bram,
    I started a petition about a month ago. And I’ll be sending it in when I think I have enough signitures to make a difference. I’m getting lots of responses. I’m not alone in wanting Leo back on CFH. Anybody can send me there name and say they want Leo back on CFH and I’ll add it to my petition.
    thanks for asking about it,
    Lisa

  3. I sure wish I knew when the show is going to be broadcast. I tuned in as usual tonight, since I thought it might be on. I’ll have to check back later. Maybe I’ll just set the vcr to tape through the night. I think all of us wish we were there. We’re never going to make it to the coveted couch potatoe position, but your show is always in demand in our homes and if you ever get close by you can be sure that practically all of us will be in line to shake your hands. (if I click twice again just shoot me.)

  4. thanks to all for the info. I think they mentioned taping many times, but I never heard them say anything about air times. This show is an addiction. while we all have our likes and dislikes Leo does a marvelous job of tying it all together and making topics we aren’t even interested in palatable. I wasn’t even aware of Austin, don’t tell me people actually live there! I thought this was a democracy. Oh never mind, florida votes don’t count.

  5. Thanks Aaron B. for the shoutcast links, i wondered if anyone was playing those tapes, thanks! I am home from work with a bad cold and that will be great to listen to while I am blurry-eyed at the computer!
    As for Leo, all I wanted to say was: “Hilaletha Oak Colin.”
    (I totally cracked up on the TSS segment with the lady and her “you talk, it types” headset. wow. not ready for prime time. Unless maybe it’s a code like the Enigma machine from WW2; we just don’t have our de-coder rings on the correct setting!)

  6. Leo..
    I really liked the segment on voice activated software, (even tho it didnt work so hot). This type of application of a major importance to me..especially in the future, as that I have polio..and use a ventilator..(like Christopher Reeve). Many friends of mine also use the dragon dictate..and spend many days and weeks training the software. It is not an easy process..but necessary for folk like us to use the technology.
    I hope that in the future TSS segments you could do some stuff having to do with the disabled community, the benefits that computers have aided us in dealing w/are disability.
    thanks…
